Found The Willows after researching the perfect spot for our 20th anniversary. And wow, was it perfect. Charming old home turned guest house in the lovely Tennis Club area of the town - walking distance to Palm Canyon but just far enough away from the hustle. Quiet, private, welcoming, personal - felt like we were stepping into the home of...

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 29 May 2016

Absolutely beautiful in every way. We’ve stayed in several of the rooms and each one is lovely in a slightly different way. What they have in common is they are all comfortable, serene, and (very important to us) exceptionally clean and well maintained. The three course breakfast is far, far beyond the usual fare served at bed and breakfasts, or...

Nice room, gorgeous upstairs porch looking straight at the mountains. Three course breakfast in the dining room, with waterfall right outside. Beautiful home, nice living room, great happy hour, pleasant pool and spa. Right next door to the Art Museum, and a block from downtown. Couldn't be better.

The Willows Inn is a real home. A romantic and high minded house set into the hillside of Palm Springs. Everything is low in Palm Springs flat, the Willows sits upright and even has a second level! It goes up and up and a rock lined path will take you on a short walk higher. There you will find the...

We could have stayed here forever! Everyone was so friendly and the room was perfectly clean. As this is an old house, one might expect some things to not be in order - but that was certainly not the case! Perfect rooms, bedding, cleanliness, landscaping and breakfast! All within walking distance of downtown Palm Springs (2 blocks). We had been...

Beautiful setting. Great Breakfast. Walking distance to museums, restaurants. Relaxing and quiet. Appetizers in the early evening thoughtfully prepared, and a wonderful opportunity to meet with other guests and share ideas for future walks and events.

We have found a new favorite get-away spot! My husband and I stayed at The Willows for 2 nights to celebrate our anniversary and loved every minute. Everything from the luxury linens to the delicious breakfast is well thought out. The innkeepers do a wonderful job making you feel comfortable and relaxed...we never felt waited on, rather very well taken...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
A vacation at The Willows Historic Palm Springs Inn feels like a visit to a friend's country estate; or rather, an acquaintance who has welcomed some very famous friends into their home over the years. Nestled among stunning mountain vistas, The Willows Historic Palm Springs Inn has been a Hollywood favorite for nearly a century. Today, this Mediterranean villa has been meticulously restored to its original elegance of the 1930s. Mahogany-beamed ceilings and natural stone fireplaces are accented by modern amenities such as complimentary high-speed wireless,in-room DVD players and iPod docking stations. A three-course gourmet breakfast next to the waterfall and nightly wine and hors d'oevres are included in the rate, making for an exceptional value. Tour the extensive gardens or relax by the pool. From the luxurious comforters and Egyptian cotton towels, no detail has been overlooked in this secluded desert oasis. ... more   less
